President/ Chairman's Message

(Oct 11th, 2016)

 

Message from the Outgoing President - Andrea Golding

My fellow residents. It has been an exciting and also challenging two terms for us and it is with great pride that I served as your President over the past 4 years. At times we were very hard pressed to accomplish our goals as we had very little resources. But we worked steadfastly and now that we come to the end of our tenure, I can say we have accomplished many things. Our new Gazebo / Community Center is our latest accomplishment and we hope it will be well utilized and cared for by those who choose to use it.

Of course we fell short on some things, but it was not for the want of effort from this team that we did not accomplish those tasks. Let me say thanks to the hard working Executive Team and to members of the various committees who supported us over the years. Time and time again they have made significant sacrifices in order to serve the community. Thanks also to you the residents for putting your trust in us.

Let’s not just focus on our accomplishments of the past 4 years, but look towards the years to come as we get ready to be led by a new team. I ask that you give your continued support to those entrusted with the development and security of our wonderful community. Through the combined effort of each resident, we can make the White Water Meadows Community a safe place to live and grow our children.

Please see attached* compilation of our various achievements over the past 4 years.

Thank you for your support.
God Bless..!!!!

Message from the President - Andrea Golding     (From the 2014 Annual Report)
                             
My fellow residents. It has been an exciting and also challenging 2 years for us and it is with great pride that I served as your President over the past 2 years.  

As most organization does at the beginning, objectives were set and we as a voluntary group were sometimes very hard pressed to accomplish our goals. We worked steadfastly and at the end of 24 months, I can say we have accomplished many things; chief among them is our ability to communicate with the residents and the frequent gathering for social and fundraising events.  

While we fell short on some things, it was not for the want of effort from this team. On some things we lobbied and got some success, while on others we met stern resistance.
Let me say thanks to the hard working Executive Team and to members of the various committees who supported us.  

Thanks also to you the residents for putting your faith in us. Let us continue in 2014 and beyond to make the White Water Meadows Community, the premium place in community living.
